ARTICLE-SUPPORT FOR LADDERS.

marinas.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Apr. 3, 4M7.

Application filed April 4, 1916. Serial N 0. 88,932.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM a citizen of the United States, residing at Caro, in the county of Tuscola and State of Michigan, have invented new and useful Improvements in Article-Supports for Ladders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a support for paint buckets, tool boxes or the like, and

asparticular application to a device for supporting these articles upon a ladder. The chief characteristic of this invention- U. BERRY,

' resides in the provision of a device of this character having means for automatically adjusting the bracket to support an article 1n vertical position and means for lockingthe bracket in adjusted position.

Another important object of this invens tlon is to provide a device of this character having means for clamping the support in Fig. 2 is side elevation ofthe ladder and article support.

Fig. 3 is adetail view of the support.

eferring more particularly to the drawings, 1 deslgnates the side rail of a ladder of any common construction, upon which is arranged an angle bar 2, the latter being formed of any suitable metal and provided at its upper end with a lateral extending ear 3. Mounted upon the angle bar 2 and is a clamping is substantially lL-shaped, the longer arm of the member extending through the ear 3 and having its free extremity threaded to receive a winged nut 5.

' The short arm of the clamping member 4 is adapted to engage the edgeof the side v rail 1 whereby u on screwing the nut 5 upon the extremity of the long arm, the angle bar 2 will be rigidly secured a to the side rail as will be understood.

Pivotally mounted upon the side portion of the angle bar 2 adjacent its lower end is the vertical arm 6 of my improved form of bracket or support 7, the vertical arm being pivoted between its ends as at 8. Extending at right angles from the vertical arm 6 of the bracket 7 is the horizontal arm 9. The upper end of the vertical arm 6 is provided with a horizontal head 10, the latter being formed with an arcuate shaped slot 11 and receiving a threaded shank 12 formed on the side of the angle bar. The threaded end of the shank 12 is adapted to receive a wing nut 13, the nut engaging the opposite Walls of the slot to lock the head 10 and consequently prevent the vertical arm 6 of the bracket from rocking upon its pivot. I

, Mounted upon the other or free end of the horizontal arm 9 of the bracket is a receptacle 14 which is preferably cylindrical and which has its under side provided adapted to extend into and through an opening 16 formed in the bracket, the free end of the stud being disposed upon 'the underside of the bracket and threaded to receive a wing nut 17. Thus it will be seen that the receptacle may be rigidly clamped upon the horizontal arm 9 of the bracket and positioned so as to receive and support a paint bucket, tool box or the like as Will be understood.

It will 'be seen from the foregoing construction that in practice the angle bar is secured to the side rail 1 of the ladder as shown in Fig. 2 whereby the nut 5 is rotated to cause the clamping member 4 to securely hold the angle barupon the ladder. Owing to the fact that the bracket? is pivotally mounted upon the angle bar 2 andassuming that the nut 13 is not engaging the head 10,. the bracket may be free to' swing or gravitate to vertical position irrespective of the angle of the ladder. Thus it will be seen that the article held within the receptacle 14 will be supported in vertical position at all times irrespective of the angle of the ladder. The bracket having been permitted'to assume its vertical position,'the wing nut 13 is then screwed upon the shank 12 so as to engage the walls of the slot 11 whereby the bracket'will be locked in adjusted or vertical position and the maintenance of the article held within the receptacle insured.

with a depending stud 15, the stud being It is thought from the foregoing taken in connection with the accompanying drawings that the-construction and operation of my device will be apparent to those skilled in the art without further description, and

that minor changes in size, shape, proportion, and minor details of construction may be made'without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.

What I claim:

1. A device of the class described ,comprising a bar, a threaded stud formed on said bar, means fonsecuring the bar to'the side rail of a ladder, a bracket pivotally mounted on the bar, said bar havi a slot formed therein, said stud extending t rough said slot, and a nut provided on said stud and engageable with the walls of said slot whereby the bracket will be locked against movement, and a receptacle carried by said bracket.

2.. A device of the class described comprising a bracket having a vertical arm and a horizontal arm, said bracket adapted to be pivotally mounted upon theside rail of a ladder, said vertical arm being provided with an arcuate shaped slot, means mounted in, said slot for locking the bracket in adjusted position, and a receptacle carried by the horizontal arm of said bracket.

3. A device of the class described comprising an angle bar, a clamping member carried by the angle bar whereby the bar may be secured to the side rail of a ladder, a bracket having a vertical and horizontal arm connected at theirends, said vertical arm being pivotally mounted upon said bar, a head formed on'the upper end of said bar and provided with a slot, means mounted on said bar and working within said slot for locking the bracket against movement, and a receptacle deta'chably mounted upon the free end of the horizontal arm..-

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

WILLIAM o. BERRY.
